Champion of the Lists of Tereken - Round Two and Championship

After playing the first round of the tournament our four winners tried to improve their stats and were paired up for the semi final.

The two semi final matches would be Sir Bedevere the Wise vs Sir Robin the Not Quite So Brave as Sir Lancelot, and Sir Not Appering in this Film vs The Knight who says Ni. Sir Bedevere imprved his Martial Skill and Prowess while Sir Not Appearing improved his horsemanship. Sir Robin and Ni were unable to raise any attributes with their Fame points.

Sir Bedevere 8 vs Sir Robin 10


Both knights seemed anxious as they both raced into the first pass. Sir Bedevere at a run and Sir Robin at a sprint. Both knights brought their lances to bear, but it was Sir Bedevere who scored the first point of the match by breaking his lance on Sir Robin's shield. 1pt. Bedevere.

In the second pass Sir Bedevere came on at a run while Sir Robin steadily galloped forth. During the charge Sir Bedevere set up a sweeping attack but was too jostled by his mount to bring the blow home. Sir Robin was able to score a hit to the Chest, breaking his lance. Bedevere 1pt, Robin 1pt.

In the third pass, fearing that he may have been too aggressive and cost himself a hit, Sir Bedevere chose to come out at a gallop as did Sir Robin. Sir Robin's superior horsemanship helped him to line up a straight attack. He then achieved a solid blow to the chest, breaking his lance and unhorsing Sir Bedevere causing him to become battered and lose 2 prowess. Sir Bedevere 1pt, Sir Robin 7pts. Sir Robin received 800 Talos and 4 Fame points for his victory.


Sir Not Appearing 10 vs Knight who says Ni 10


In the first pass Sir N/A came out very conservatively at a trot while Ni threw caution t the wind and came out at a run. Sir N/A was rewarded for his efforts and achieved a solid blow to the chest which broke his lance and left Ni battered and reduced by 2 in his Prowess attribute. Sir N/A 1pt, Ni 0pts.

The second pass saw both knights come out at a gallop. Sir N/A set up a sweeping attack and achieved a solid blow to the shield, breaking his lance and further reducing Ni's Prowess by 1. N/A 2pts, Ni 0pts.

In the third pass both knight s came out at a gallop. At this point Ni appeared to be playing for pride. Ni was able to line up a straight attack in the charge, but it was Sir N/A who came away with a solid blow to the shield, breaking his final lance and reducing Ni's Prowess by one more point. Sir N/A 3pts, Ni 0 pts. Sir N/A won 1000 Talos and gained 10 Fame points.

Both Sir Robin and Sir N/A had enough points to raise one attribute each, to a total of 11. They both now had exactly the same stats.

Sir Not Appearing 11 vs Sir Robin 11

My son started this game as Sir Robin but became disinterested after the first pass. From then on Sir Robin became the NPK.

In the first pass Sir N/A came out at a gallop while Sir Robin came out at a run. Sir N/A set up a sweeping attack, but it was Sir Robin who achieved a hit to the shield, breaking his lance and battering Sir N/A with a loss of 1 to his prowess. Sir N/A 0pts, Sir Robin 1pt.

The second pass saw both knights come out at a gallop. Sir N/A's hopes were up when he scored a hit to Sir Robin's chest, but he only managed to break his lance. Sir Robin, on the other hand, scored another blow to the shield, breaking his lance and further reducing Sir N/A's prowess by 1. Sir N/A 1pt, Sir Robin 2pts.

In the third pass Sir N/A went for broke and came out at a sprint. It would be harder to hit, but if he did the damage would be potentially greater. Sir Robin came out at a gallop. Sir N/A's plan was all for naught as Sir Robin lined up a good angle of attack and achieved another solid blow to the shield of Sir N/A, breaking the lance and reducing his prowess by another 2 points. Sir N/A 1 pt, Sir Robin 3pts. So Sir Robin gained 1100 Talos and 11 more Fame points. 

He was only able to raise himself up to 12 points so I went to the NPK table for Kingdom level tournaments and rolled that he had one lower than the average score in one attribute. So I added one point to another attribute and now have my 15 point champion.


Wish me luck in the tournament.
